QUILTING 101 – Classes for Beginners

Do you have a sewing machine and want to learn to sew/quilt? Or perhaps you don’t have a sewing machine but would like to learn anyways?

Are you unsure of how to start, which tools to buy, what fabric to select, which colors to use? Intimidated by so-called easy patterns, large classes and all the expense?

Join me and learn to choose fabrics with confidence, cut, piece, press and sew accurately and quilt easily. Create projects to warm your home and make gifts for those special people for whom you wish to give a gift from the heart.

Lots of individual instruction: Studio Class size is limited to 6.

Bring your own machine… and to be able thread it and sew a line;
and I’ll teach you the rest.

If you do not have a machine, machines are available for class use. If you have a machine but is not able to thread and use it – a short session can be arranged to cover this step.
